ok, but my point is that you can have a good weld, yet the vehicle
can self destruct from poor materials or poor design. A good weld
can still fail, if the loads it sees, while the rat rod is driving around,
are greater than its breaking point.
The frame on that thing looks pretty flimsy, to handle the torque
of that big block at full throttle.
